Thanks especially to Stacy Davies in Claremont, CA who spearheaded the whole project. I spoke with Stacy last Friday and thanked her personally for this terrific gift.
(See some pictures below!)
I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine's Day and that you get to spend it with those you love. Let's especially remember our brave men and women in uniform serving overseas on this holiday who won't be spending Valentine's Day at home. Thanks to your generosity, our wounded soldiers recovering at Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center will also be able to enjoy your thoughtful gift -- we sent the roses there this afternoon.
We've got a lot of work ahead of us. But every once in a while it's nice to stop and smell the roses. Thanks again for such a warm and generous gift.
Have a happy Valentine's Day!
P.S. I've attached a couple photos from this afternoon. This is what 4,500 roses looks like!
